In Japan, at least 17 people are dead and 50 more are missing in the aftermath of a powerful typhoon.
Packing winds of more than 110 miles per hour, Typhoon Wipha caused deadly mudslides that destroyed dozens of homes on the Japanese island of Izu Oshima, south of Tokyo.
The storm paralyzed Tokyo's public transportation. Flights were also cancelled, leaving hundreds of passengers stranded.
"People on this island are somewhat used to heavy rainstorms, but this typhoon was beyond our imagination," Yutaka Sagara, a 59-year-old sushi chef on the east coast of the island, said.
Town officials have not been able to determine the extent of the storm's damage.
The typhoon is expected to hit northern Japan later this week.
